in reply to Can Perl read the hard drive registration #?

If this is to be used as copy protection or to ensure the program is only run on the original computer, you need to consider what will happen if the user reformats or replaces their hard drive.

[shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
[Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
[shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
[shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
[msh210]: hm, okay, I'll try, thanks
